MATT OWEN

smallMOwenphotoMatt moved to Orange Park to assume the role of Lead Teaching Pastor in April 2014 after spending five years as Associate Pastor at Community Bible Church in the metro-Detroit area. The good news of Jesus is the passion of his life and ministry. He desires to help people connect the truth of this good news to the diversity of their life circumstances, offering great hope in despair, lasting answers to their questions, and boundless joy in their sorrow.

Matt graduated from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary with an M.Div. in 2006. He married his wife, Erica, in 2002, and has 4 children - Stella, Ruby, Schaeffer, and Eloise. He enjoys sports and is brave enough to remain an Ohio State fan even in the midst of Gator country!
